cliff, raising taxes in a slow economy. all of it is coming home to roost. >> mike, we had the president come out saying that he will veto any legislation that allows the tax cuts to be extended for the highest earners. is that what poured water on the rally? >> it didn't hurt. obviously, there was no breakthrough. i think the one thing to take away from today's action was the fever kind of broke a little bit in terms of the market really being hyper actively responding to every little knnuance. i think the market would have liked to see a little more affirmative suggestions that were going to come closer together. i don't think it was something that alarmed everybody, considering the height of panic that built up over a couple days. >> all right, guys. thanks so much. appreciate that. it has been a week to forget for the bulls. tough week after the election. courtney reagan wraps up the big losers and mixes in a few silver linings on the upside. court, over to you. i don't hear her. okay. courtney reagan, obviously her microphone, we're going to fix that in a moment and get back to her.
now have you growth through economy growth, if you want earnings to grow, you need economy growth, if the president is going to destimulate the economy, which is what he is doing with a tax increase, just over fairness. you know, i never called president obama a socialist, i have been on shows that people made me say this, but think about what he does, he is saying i don't care about the economy or unemployment, i just want to achieve my overall aim, that is to expand the size of government. neil: we know he is putting much more emphasis, his idea of a planned approach on revenues than on spending. progressive i talk to does not matter. they talk about waste, fraud and abuse program, as far as they go. >> they are so tunnel vision, they think that bill clinton raised taxes and automatically the economy to off, that did not happen. neil i know the gardener of the white house, their thinking is, wall street hates us, so woot has done great since we came into offers. >> that is not wall street. neil: and gardner knows, and said, look they can bitch all they want. we have been good fo
about, you know, what students get in debt, like that's the biggest problem in the economy? it's crazy. >> there's also an irony here, too, because mitt romney represents the forces within our society who get, if you want to call them gifts, the most gifts. the defense industry, he was prepared to say he will increase the deficit to give you more. the elderly who mainly voted for mitt romney, if you want to look at the apportionment of government spending, get a far disproportionate share. most of the quote, unquote gift if you want to call it that, they're mostly going to the people who voted for mitt romney, red states who are basket cases, wards of the blue states. >> we're not against that. >> jared, final word to you. >> from the very beginning, it always looked to me like mitt romney and his minions looked down at the american economy and decided rich people don't have enough, and i just think that's not the economic analysis that's going to move this country forward. >> absolutely. >> and i'll bet he wasn't saying that when the olympics were asking for gifts from the federal gov
towards saving the country's economy were dropping off the so-called fiscal cliff which one of our guest tonight more aptly calls the austerity bomb. >> pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep the middle class taxes low. >> eliot: the president also emphasized what he would not do a sending time to make a tax deal with house republicans. >> obama: what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> eliot: mr. obama also waded into the scandal that saw general david petraeus step down as director of the c.i.a. he offered assurances that damage from petraeus' affair was at least so far confined to the general and his family, and offered some words of support. >> obama: i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was di
't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier
. it has already started doing that. do you see broader implications for the stock market and economy? >> yes. the small-business start-ups are down. they will continue to be down. we have fewer ipos now than we had ten years ago. companies just don't want to be public because of all of the regulations. venture capital is down. there is less investment in new businesses. gerri: whose fault is that? whose fault is that? >> i think the fault is directly on the government because they have added a tremendous amount of insecurity. what we are talking about with obamacare, as of 2014, a barrage of provisions, taxes. i mean, what they are saying is that they are declaring war on business. this idea that what apple bees is doing is wrong is unbelievable. they have to make a profit. if they can make a profit, they have to reduce their employment. gerri: you say that will happen with a lot of businesses across the country, presumably there are lots of ways to get -- more than one way to find a solution. what do you think would work at this point to get these two sides together to find some kin
that the central bank can't do much more to shelter the economy. >> we need to completely reboot tax policy and spending policy. if we have temporary fixes to the fiscal cliff, just push out the envelope of indecision until we have a sense of true direction, and it's time for our politicians to get their act together. >> fisher says he does not view the fed as a safety net. that is certainly a change of perception, one that congress is going to have to figure out pretty quickly along with the rest of washington. >> that it is. there's been a number of interviews this morning that would lead you to the same place. cisco reporting better than expected first quarter earnings in revenues, but the tech giant expects flat earnings and slower revenue growth for the current quarter. john chambers sees europe getting worse before it gets better, but he says there are signs of improvement in the u.s. economy. >> we want to be the one company that both exceeds expectations and doesn't bring down guidance. so kind of a hint on terms of what we see. it really says we're in the right spots for growth. mo

of reasons, including it will be damaging to the economy. we learned recently that president obama in august of 2011 was kind of ready to do a nixon goes to china moment on entitlements and i think that's still on the table. have real entitlement reform. on taxes it's as bill clinton said. it's simple math. spending is at 24% of gdp. taxes are at about 15% of gdp right now. even the most conservative member of congress only proposes to bring spending down to say 20% or even 19% of gdp. you still have a 4% to 5% gap. that represents hundreds of billions of dollars that has to be made up. even if you assume growth could get back to 3%, that won't make up the gap. so taxes have to be on the table. there's no way to get around that if you want to actually deal with the fiscal crisis that we have. and what is most heartening to me is to learn today that the president is willing to take this show on the road, to go out into the states and make the case and actually reinforce that mandate he has and make republicans realize that those that want to work with him will be rewarded as people who are tr
tax rates under reagan? 39% by it's will not cripple the economy. >> rush limbaugh is trying to fight back, but it doesn't sound like he has much fight in him. >> do the democrats after losing elections, ever say, you know what? we're going to have to cut taxes if we are ever going to get back in touch with the american people. they don't. they don't. we, on the other hand are the exact opposite. we start making tracks to abandoning our principles and loyalists as fast as we can. all to precede them. >> "the new york times" reports on a conference call with house republicans a day after the general election, john boehner said they would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases, but on sunday. bill kristolly to republican house members it's not just them versus the president, it's them versus history. >> i think republicans will have to give in much more than they think. four presidents in the last election vo won 50% of the vote twice. roosevelt, eisenhower, reagan, and obama. republicans in the house will be able to get some concessions, but i think there will be a big budget

economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian is in washington, d.c., this morning. let's start first, dan, before we get to the ambassador, the embattled ambassador, let's start with taxes. >> well, yes. you know, republicans pushing back on the president yesterday, because they don't want to see taxes raised, even on wealthy americans, because they believe that that will stifle economic growth and will hit those people who are the job creators. at the same time, there does appear to be this willingness to

and climate change legislation. saying instead that he was focusing first on the economy and creating jobs. >> i am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it has impacted -- as a consequence i think we have an obligation to future generations to do something about it. and understandably i think the american people right now have been so focused and will continue to be focused on our economy and jobs and growth that if the message is somehow we're going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, i don't think anybody's going to go for that. i won't go for that. >> reporter: now, wolf, president obama said that more needs to be done. but he says he wants to have a national conversation talking to scientists, elected officials, engineers. so keeping it very broad. not getting into specifics. not talking about the sweeping energy and climate change legislation. but when you're talking to folks on both sides of this, those who are environmentalists, those who are in the energy industries, they seem to think that doesn't mean that he's not going to be taking action ju

just consider mitt romney had won, he said he'd be focused exclusively on the economy, president-elect for a day and a half and then a sex scandal breaks out with his top generals. that would have been interesting to see how governor romney handled that moment. >> the other aspect of this story that i assume the country will get to, the media will get to quite quickly is the surveillance tape. i mean, this is pretty scary stuff. some of your e-mails to me and mine back to you, i don't want anybody reading them. >> yeah, that would be bad. you know, and it's interesting. here's the surveillance -- the architects of the surveillance tape caught up in the surveillance tape. that's the kind of thing that's so fascinating about it. >> but one of the fascinating degrees is the degrees to which broadwell and petraeus went to lengths to try and stop their e-mails being traced, by using this system of saving in the draft folder in their e-mail accounts and stuff. so they were clearly aware of the risk of being watched. and yet they still went ahead and sent e-mails on an extraordinary sca
